 roll in hand .. decorate if you want .. place on cookie sheet.. Bake 350 for about 12 - 15 minutes..

When you decorate..use anything you want... i use a cherry on top, walnut, sprinkles..etc.. some you can leave plain..and use colored frostings..when they cool ..At xmas sometimes I make them different colors...and flavors...just change the  vanilla to what you want...anise,etc.. I split the dough....and make three kinds..you get the idea :-)
 
 I use this all year... they are tasty yet simple to make
